GLATISANT, a long-striding filly, instantly found many admirers after an impressive debut in the Virginia Water Stakes at Ascot yesterday.

The Geoff Wragg-trained two- year-old now leads the betting, at 25-1, for next year's Oaks with Ladbrokes and William Hill. Yesterday she defeated a field of fellow newcomers with utmost ease and the daughter of Rainbow Quest is also 16-1 for the 1,000 Guineas with Hills, and 25- 1 with Ladbrokes.

Always cantering while the rest were working hard to hold their positions, Glatisant swept clear for a five-length win over Blue Siren. The performance had been anticipated. She went off 10-11 favourite, and Wragg said: 'I knew she was good. I wanted Michael Hills to drop her in behind, but they didn't go fast enough for her.'

After another race, Wragg will pitch her against the best in the Cheveley Park Stakes.
